One of our most popular topics is our Movie Battle Royale. Eight great movies walk into the ring, eight favorites or classics. We then begin the process of voting for what is the best of the best, until we are left with one. Final. Champion. The greatest film of that genre in the known HO universe.

This week, we tackle Alien Invasion movies. Those films that trigger some of our worse fears, that aliens are coming to Earth…and they are not here for peace. What could the greatest invasion film be? Could it be Independence Day, maybe Pacific Rim, how about Men in Black or War of the Worlds? This week, all bets are off as we settle this debate once and for all.
